The Temptation story
MARK 1: 12-15
On this first Sunday of Lent we continue reading Mark’s fast-moving Gospel. We encounter Jesus coming out of his baptism full of the Holy Spirit. He had just seen “the heavens torn apart” (Mk 1:10) and the Spirit, like a dove descend and proclaim “You are my son the Beloved; my favour rests on you” (Mk1:11).
